Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash lets you play via the Wiimote, but not with motion
Tennis games are one of the few titles where most gamers are interested in motion controls, or at the very least, understand the decision. When it comes to Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash, Nintendo isn't going to include that option. You can indeed play via the Wiimote, but only if you hold it sideways. I'm guessing there are too many shot types to be mapped to different motion controls and actually have them stay accurate.
